Fuck you.

Were you speaking from someone in Nashville when you heard this salutation?

by Anonymousreply 106/17/2010

Thank you, Father.

I bet it's a FB status, right? I see that a million times a day. Makes me cringe.

Just . . . in general. It's everywhere.

A sales clerk asked me how I was and I said "fine, and yourself?" She replied "the Lord is good and his mercy is everlasting. Glory to him."


It's on Facebook. It's on people's outgoing voicemails. It's every fucking place.

Ditto, OP!

Would such people be OK if you replied, "Allah is good?"

If not, you're right: fuck 'em. Their religion is not mine.

OTOH, we vilify religious people on here all the time, yet my experience with ones I know is that they're not remotely like this.

There are advantages to being a slightly deaf hermit.

Agree with r6. I've met many atheists who are just as hateful as any fundie.

I just reply with, "May the force be with you too!"

Anyone who objects is a sad, bitter person. What insanity or evil spirit would make someone object to a blessing?

by Anonymousreply 1106/17/2010

It's akin to someone saying "I'm praying for you." And praise be to Mother Goose, dick.

r11, most gay atheists are bitter about their lot in life and probably are infected. They take it out on those who love them no matter their lot in life.

Were things too pleasant around here for you R9/13? Is that why you decided to start flinging poo?

I can live with have a blessed's the sentiment that counts, but when they go on about the greatness of god and everlasting whatever...Please keep you delusions to yourself.

Be that as it may R9 at least atheists don't base their entire existence on a thousand year old myth and a god who doesn't exist.

When they pull that stuff, is it okay if I invoke the name of Cthulu?

Sorry, but whenever I see the "blessed day" discussions, I'm glad I don't live wherever some of you come from. I never come across any of these religious types, except for the occasional Jehovah's Witness handing out The Watchtower down in the subway.

I'm in DC, R18. Call any random government agency 10 times and I can guarantee that you'll hear it as the outgoing message on at least one of the voicemail boxes.

by Anonymousreply 1906/17/2010

R15 here R19. I'm an NY native. It doesn't happen that much here at all, but it does happen. When I visit Florida on the other hand....daily!

The Jehovah Witness haven't hit my neighborhood in years. Praise the Lord!

Oh but there are the preaching women on the IRT, usually during morning rush, ranting and a raving...SHUT UP!

How about "may the Farce be with you?"

I really don't encounter it that much. Certainly sometimes, but not that often.

And, I live in the Midwest.

I hate it worse when I southern woman (usually older) follows up with "sug" (like sugar, minus the ar).
